I strike the tips of my fingers on plastic for a living.. and also think too much about what's in front of me.

comment Copied FLV file with FFMPEG won't open in any program except VLC
I've been using MacTubes to test #5. I just installed youtube-dl and downloaded #5 and I noticed that the filesize and resolution were different from the one I downloaded from MacTubes, and that the video encoder is flv1, the same as what you had. Even more mind-boggling is the fact that I can't get the file downloaded from youtube-dl to play in QT. So I think the issue is getting too localized, and with all the discrepancies I've been encountering I think the sane route is to sing VLC's praises and focus on other tasks. Thanks for your help.

-c:a aac causes ffmpeg to hang, forcing me to close and open a new terminal. -c:a mp3 still produces a file unplayable with QT. The youtube id this question is based on is rNp-cj5dEA8. If you could give me a YT id and the associated command that works for you (original and copy both playable by QT), I could try it out and see if it works on my machine. BTW what type of ffmpeg build do you have? Starting to think I might have to downgrade or reinstall.

The truncated output for the last 3 was the same as the first complete output at the top (bunch of metadata for the original file). OK I must admit my original command (as well as output3.flv, thanks for this) does work with VLC but not with anything else (Flash says audio codec is not supported). This is good news but I think it is reasonable to expect playback in other video players, so I'm rewording the question.

-c:v mpeg4 gives me similar results. -c:v libxvid takes a more realistic amount of time to process but still does not produce a playable output. Even a straight copy command ffmpeg -i input.flv -c:v copy -c:a copy output.flv without filters does not work unfortunately.
